Can you get any more low rent that this horrible woman?
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee sporting a pair of white flip-flops with her pearls while on the House floor on Monday.
While the Texas Democrat was all business on top — wearing a red suit jacket with a black and white scarf and pearl necklace — she was ready to hit the beach on the bottom, with her toe-baring shoes. The House feed on C-SPAN did not capture the summer recess-worthy thongs.
An ITK spy who observed the warm weather footwear noted that earlier on Monday, Jackson Lee delivered a one-minute speech behind a podium near the center of the floor that happens to obscure the lower half of one’s body. Typically, lawmakers will go to the front of the chamber near the dais to give a speech at the podium stationed there.
In her blog, CapHillStyle.com, former Hill staffer Abra Belke advises against daring to bare ones feet in flip-flops in the workplace.
“Unless you work in a very casual office, flip-flops are not acceptable work attire,” Belke writes.
